    Ma 850

    These head phones are pretty good bit overpriced. Had three pairs of these waiting for my fourth set. If your not getting the bass maybe change the size of the buds it's napped to me before the sound is totally different without the right size buds on

    Bassophiles, this bud's not for you

    These entry level dual-driver buds provide a clean, transparent, balanced, compressed mix, with the individually driven two-way speakers providing some air and dimension. The bass is there but in balance, like a professionally mixed and mastered recording.

    I wonder what the market is for these buds. I figure you've got your typical iMasses who dont even care and just use whatever stock buds came w/their device, you've got your bassophiles/Beats crowd who won't like these, and you've got your audiophiles paying $280 and up for upmarket stuff. What's the selling point here besides being the most affordable dual-drivers ... and do people even know what that is? and if they do, Apple doesn't even tout that anywhere on or in the packaging.

    These hurt my ears a lot and are difficult to get in. Sound is good but I won't be using them.

    Would be great if they lasted

    I replaced my last set because left earphone died and now the exact same thing happened with new ones. Great sound, looks, comfort, carrying case etc. but durability is just disastrous.

    God Awful

    The sound is flat, no bass whatsoever, uncomfortable in your ear, and overpriced. Use EarPods. Seriously.

    Garbage

    Been using them for a year.

    cons.:
    -The gray plastic at the end of connector and ear-piece literally rot away, after 6 months of NON frequent use.
    -No Bass.
    -The silicon tips keep falling off.
    -The volume control stopped working as well.
    -Overpriced.

    pros.:
    -They look nice.

    Don't get these

    I've had two pairs. The main reason I went to this model was that the new standard earbuds were too large for my ears. These offer limited frequency response, the ear buds fall off, and the left side drops out. I would look at other manufacturers.

    I used the h-e-double-hockey sticks outta these (Apple won't let me curse)

    ...and after three years, they're starting to fall apart. Still, a good value at $27 a year. For all you haters who can't hang onto the silicone tips (yeah, I lost one too), go to Amazon and order a three-pair set of Comply Whoomp Foam Tips for $15. They will absolutely block out outside noise and allow you to listen to music or carry on a phone conversation in a noisy area.

    Good buds...

    I must admit the sound quality is really good. However, living in a dry climate (Calgary) like I do, I have noticed, after time, static electricity build up on the metallic speakers to which the rubber buds attach to. Sometimes the discharge of static electricity is quite painful, so I remedied the situation by taking clear tape and adhering to the speakers on both the left and right side. It definitely solved the problem, but I hoped I wouldn't have resorted to such measures. Out of really good ear buds that I've used, these are good except that.

    Thanks for your attention.

    Zero Bass

    For any bass lovers this headphone is not the right choice.

    An Ok Headphone, Not worth the price

    The highs and mids are good. as expected with a two driver headphone, It really does allow you to hear more detail. However, the bass is non existent unless you create a perfect seal with the headphone in your ear. I was expecting more. They look like the regular headphones Apple offers, so don't expect anyone to notice your 80 dollar headphones. Now for the major downfalls. The earpieces are not comfortable! it comes with 3 sizes and none fit just right. and they begin to hurt after a while If you manage to get them in just right don't expect them to come off in one piece. The earpiece will pop off in your ear while the rest comes out and you have to fish it out of your ear. In fact they pop off so easily i have already lost almost all of them.

    A huge apple fan but honestly the worst purchase I've ever made...

    I purchased the headphones less than one month ago and was quite happy with the product even though over priced at £65 in my opinion but hey, then they decided to BRAKE. The headphones were fine for around 2 weeks on till the left ear began to develop a crackle in the the quality, soon after the sound became quieter and seem distant and exactly 5 days ago the left headphone stopped producing sound altogether . Recently the right ear headphone has developed the same crackle and most probably will STOP WORKING altogether like the left side of the headphones. So anyone interested in these headphones look away because they are not worth the MONEY absolute let down !!!. I personally would purchase the standard pair that you receive in the box of your iPhone/iPod ect which I will be doing on payday, a cheaper, longer lasting product with with still quite impressive quality.

    Fantastic in-ear buds.

    I was a little skeptical about purchasing these headphones because, to be honest, I have never really liked the traditional Apple earbuds that come with the new products. I actually received these as a gift from a friend. Now that I've had a chance to use them, I would definitely buy them for myself.

    Considering the fact that these are not studio monitors I can still hear a higher level of detail than with traditional earbuds. I keep seeing people talk about not getting the bass response that they want from these and it's really a simple matter of fact... The drivers are tiny. They fit in your ear. An effective bass speaker needs to push a lot of air very slowly to make a big bang and that's why car speakers are so large and in sealed boxes most of the time. Tiny little speakers just aren't very effective at reproducing the super low notes, but I digress.

    I would recommend these ear buds for those who like sound quality more than sound quantity.

    disappointed again

    2nd iphone I have bought. Love the 5s but the ear phones right out of the box do not work on my left side. Sound was good.

    Love them!

    I put off buying these for a long time because I wasn't really a fan of the in ear type. When I upgraded from iPhone 4s to iPhone 5s in January or this year with the newer type I started using them. And a few weeks ago I broke down and purchased these from a local store. I love them! I haven't had them very long but I have had no problems with them. I originally put the small covers on them then switched back to the mediums when I read another review about finding the best fit being important for the sound. And it was a huge difference! Now my bass is excellent! I love that you can skip and rewind songs right from the remote on them! I would definitely recommend them to a friend or family member!

    Remote is great; sound not so much

    These are great if your audio is limited to mono conference calls with your boss. If you're interested in listening to much on these things, make sure it's not rap, as there is 0% bass. The remote is awesome, enabling you to shuffle through your music (sorry, conference calls) quickly.

    They sound tinny, shrill, and way too bright for anything other than Brian Eno or EDM. Into dubstep? Do NOT buy these headphones.

    DO NOT BUY THESE HEADPHONES

    These headphones cost £65 - but YOU CANNOT REPLACE THE RUBBER END BITS - apple does not sell them and the headphone is smaller than standard brands so other makes do not fit.

    THIS NOW MEANS THAT 16 WEEKS AFTER SPENDING £65 ON THESE HEADPHONES - I NEED TO THROW THEM AWAY...

    (I lost a small size rubber end bit in a taxI - when travelling. It cannot be replaced. Headphones now useless)


    So DO NOT BUY THESE HEADPHONES YOU ARE WASTING YOUR MONEY !!!!

    Descent

    It's a good headphone but Apple is not making headphones as their main thing so I suggest going with the Apple EarPods their are extremely great sounding headphones I have ever seen and it's just $30.But,if you like In-Ear Headphones go with the others or take this one.
